In the past three years, Karolinska has reached the 10th, 7th and 8th places in Newsweek’s list of “Best Hospitals in the World,” which this year is based on a rating of 2,300 hospitals in 28 countries.
This year’s sixth place is, according to Bjorn Zuga, Hospital Director at Karolinska University Hospital, a great recognition for the staff of Karolinska and for Swedish healthcare.
– We know we’re among the best in the world, and with Newsweek’s ranking, the world knows that too. After fighting the pandemic, we have continued to shorten queues and waiting times, improve quality and develop new treatment methods, says Bjorn Zoga in a press release.
The best hospital in the world She is, according to Newsweek, the American Mayo Clinic in Minnesota. In second and third places are two more US hospitals, the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio and the Massachusetts General Hospital in Massachusetts. All three were in the same position on last year’s list.
Sahlgrenska University Hospital is found in Gothenburg at 84th place and Akademiska Sjukhuset in Uppsala at 85th place.
Hospitals are ranked according to four criteria: recommendations from international experts, results in patient questionnaires, and quality outcomes such as waiting times and the degree to which patients estimate the benefit of their treatment.
